RMA Partners with Gridics to Bring Zonar.City, the World’s First Site-Specific Zoning Software, to Municipalities Nationwide


Redevelopment Management Associates (www.rma.us.com) has announced a partnership with Gridics, LLC to introduce Zonar.City (www.zonar.city), a patent-pending site-specific zoning software that will be a game changer for the industry. This advanced software instantly builds 3D models of any parcel, or assemblage of parcels, under the specific land use and zoning regulations, saving municipal planners weeks of work. RMA utilized the software in beta-testing and was key in optimizing the platform. The redevelopment company and the software company are now combining forces to introduce the application to municipal leaders, urban planners and architects nationwide.

“As a leader in the redevelopment sector, RMA is constantly seeking new ways to improve the process,” said Kim Briesemeister, RMA co-founder. “The Zonar.City software will truly revolutionize this industry. We are honored to be partnering with them to bring this product to market.”

Zonar.City is the world’s first site-specific zoning software application to integrate GIS, property record data and land development regulations into a real-time interactive tool that helps visualize the development pattern and provides statistical data of the development capacity of a site. The cloud-based software is fully customizable, allowing calibration to any city’s code and testing of new codes to validate expected outcomes. The powerful software also features many other functions to expedite and simplify the plan review process. The company recently announced the successful conclusion of a $1.1 million round of seed funding.

Natasha Alfonso-Ahmed, RMA’s Director of Urban Design and Planning, was asked to utilize the beta version of Zonar.City by Gridics co-founder, Max Zabala. Immediately impressed by the overall scope, she assisted the team with key feedback to improve the functionality and is convinced that the software will be transformative to cities and planners.

“We have put a strong emphasis on partnering with leaders in the real estate development community to help us build software tools that solve complex problems,” said Jason Doyle, CEO of Gridics. “We believe our Zonar.City platform will become the digital zoning standard for municipalities nationwide, and we are grateful to have such a reputable firm like RMA on our side to help make that a reality.”

RMA will be introducing the software at the Florida City County Managers annual conference in Orlando, Florida, May 31- June 3, 2017 and is implementing the software on projects in Florida cities including Pompano Beach, Sunrise and Lake Park.
